There are many benefits to kids’ camp

BC kids’ camps are really among the best in the world. Canada is the birthplace of the summer camp, and BC's boundless beauty offers an environment envied the world over. Still, many parents are reluctant to push their kids into attending camp, but there are many long-term benefits that make it more than worthwhile.

Camp offers one-of-a-kind opportunities to develop independence, self esteem, leadership and social skills. It’s not as comfortable as sitting at home on the couch, but it’s critical to young people’s development to, in fact, get out of the comfort zone. Camps do that in a way that is fun, engaging and often life-altering. 

Take a full look at the benefits offered by BC’s kids’ camps.

What can you expect a BC camp to cost?

Depending on the type of camp and whether it’s day or overnight, the cost can range anywhere from $200-$600+ per week or by day. It’s best to contact the camps of your choice to find out what’s included in the cost, such as meals or transportation, or what’s not such as spending money for a snack shack.

Find the right BC camp for your child

If you’re looking for some guidance on how to begin your search for a camp or program in BC, create a list of what your child and your family is most interested in with a camp experience. 

Typical basic concerns for parents

  • Does the location matter? 
  • What types of programs or activities would your child enjoy the most? 
  • Would they like a single-sex or coed camp? 
  • Do they want to develop a particular interest or passion further? 
  • Decide what’s most important with your child and your family and research your options from there.

Questions you might not have considered

  • How are kids grouped together? If it’s by age group, how diverse are the ages? 
  • How well are camp leaders trained in conflict resolution? Does the camp use restorative justice, for example? 
  • What steps does the camp take to ensure the safety of children during outings? 

Of course, these are just a few of the questions you might ask. 

These are just a few of the concerns any Ontario parent should have when looking at camps.
